Dagstur till Delfi från Aten
After meeting your guide in Athens, hear tales about the ancient Greeks and their lives in Delphi while traveling to the town by air-conditioned coach. Pass through the towns of Levadia and Arachova – both famous for their production of brightly colored carpets – and arrive in Delphi around midday.
First stop is a tour of the Delphi archeological site – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and easily one of the most important digs in Europe. As you walk around the evocative ruins with your guide, see famous monuments like the Temple of Apollo.
Head inside Delphi Archeological Museum and explore this veritable treasure trove at leisure. Home to countless artifacts and intriguing relics, the museum consists of 15 rooms arranged in chronological order from 15th century BC to 4th century AD. Be sure to check out the bronze Charioteer of Delphi and the Sphinx of Naxos.
After eating lunch at a Delphi hotel (own expense), you will return to Athens, stopping in Arachova on the way to stretch your legs or grab a coffee (own expense).

We planned a day trip excursion from Athens to Delphi and chose this tour since the cost of transport (it's about two hours from Athens) was included in the overall cost. Our guide was well- informed but my critique of this tour was the poor time management. The bus did not leave the departure location on time and we made a half hour stop on the way to Delphi so that by the time we reached the site we had very limited time due to the overall schedule of the day. We only were given a small amount of time to explore on our own (there's a magnificent stadium at the top of the site but we had to practically run up and down to see it) and then had to rush through the museum due to time constraints. Then at the end of the day, and I do not recall ever being informed of the arrangement, the bus dropped off the group at different sites throughout Athens, which was another delay in our evening plans for after the tour. Again, very informative and I learned more about Delphi than I otherwise would have but the poor logistical planning meant we were rushed through the enjoyable parts.
The trip interesting. The tour guide was good and the lunch that we paid extra for was good. Tecommend
We enjoyed our day trip to Delphi . It was a long drive but our tour guide on the day was excellent and gave an interesting and informative commentary on the drive as well as at the Delphi site and museum . Our driver was also fantastic , altogether an informative and enjoyable day with highly professional staff who know their stuff , thanks .
A very good trip all round - although it's a 6 hour round trip by coach it was good to see the suburbs of Athens and the countryside en route to Delphi. Our guide gave us plenty of background information during the journey to the site. The tour of the site was really good despite not being able to visit the stadium due to land fall in the copious winter rains. The museum was excellent. The lunch site was pleasant but the food very average - a welcome break nonetheless. Recommended tour - for those interested in the ancient world.
We enjoyed the tour of the ruins and the museum, and the lunch that followed. It was raining on the day that we went, so we were not able to see the stadium due to the path being closed. Our guide was very informative and friendly. I wish we would also have had an opportunity to see the Tholos.
Hotel pickup wasted a lot of time. 90 minutes. Six hours of travel for three hours of tour not counting hotel pick up. Guide was fluent in English but her acsent made it difficult to understand. Large group of 42. Would not recommend
The pick up was a bit late and we had to change to a different bus but the drive there was amazingly beautiful. The guide was really informative mixing history and myth. The actual site was stunning! It was really crowded though and I think that annoyed the tour guide. The museum was ok though. FYI don’t book with lunch they’ll drop you off at the town of Delphi where my friends and I found a really good souvlaki place that was a really decent price.
Enjoyed the tour, very informative and friendly tour guide. It was a large group, so there was some waiting around for people. We opted for the lunch at the Hotel Amalia - very nice Greek salad and vegetable sides, chicken was okay. All in all a very nice day! Would definitely recommend.
Loved the guide and the tour. The car even had free wifi!
This was a wonderful tour, or give was very educated on Greek history, but never made it boring. The bus ride was great, and comfortable. The time at Delphi was amazing, had plenty of time to see everything. Would highly recommend this tour.
